“I can’t understand it when people say they don’t like a particular color. . . . How on earth can you not like a colour? Dale Chihuly
“One can only wonder what kind of genius thought of blowing human breath down a metal tube, forming a bubble inside a molten blob of glass. And to think that this molten blob of glass is made only of silica or sand, the most common material in the world, that can be transformed from a solid to a liquid to a solid just from fire. For me it’s the most mysterious and magical of all the inventions or materials that mankind has invented or discovered.” Dale Chihuly
“Glass is the most magical of all materials. It transmits light in a special way.” Dale Chihuly
